In this original argument, Michael Stanford proposes a single structure to incorporate all aspects of history -events, evidence, interpretations, books and lectures, popular ideas and social effects - into one comprehensive whole. Stanford grounds his study in the common-sense meaning of the word, 'structure'; he then composes one paradigm encompassing the organization of history as a whole and the organization of each of its parts. Dr Stanford locates the poblems of studying story, both philosophical and practical. He clarifies the issues and exemplifies the current thinking of both historians and philosophers.
